I use Engine Room for my spares I have just looked and a starter for a Honda can range from 200 to 300 if that helps.

Chris -

Spartacus repaired his own trim motor last year - might be worth a read as I think much of it will be similar:

http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=38278

But if that doesn't help then it would be worth taking the starter to a local motor factor and see if they can match it to anything (I can't recommend anyone in Ed but there must be several) - as I'd have thought it unlikely that it was a unique part? If not (or you still don't like the cost) then you might be able to get the old one repaired / reconditioned. I think there is a place in East Kilbride who reconditions starters/alternators etc but the name escapes me (or they may have disappeared in the last 10 yrs) - there may well be somebody in the East too.

There maybe Neil but it depends on the age and condition whether its worth itor not, because as you know if the SM is not putting all the juice into the 'thump' then it is useless. I know that thru personal experience and thats why I bouight a new strater.

Rememebr you also have at least 10 electrical connections and a solenoid between your battery , key and a spinning starter motor.

Take the lid off the engine - do you hear a "click" from the solenoid? (follow the big chunky wire form the starter to the black box / blob with two big wires & a small wire - that box / blob is what should click)

If yes, get a multimeter & check for 12V all the way back to the battery. If you get 12V battery side of the solenoid & nothing starter side (with the key in the "start" position and it having "clicked"), either your solenoid is gubbed or you got a well bad connection. You may need someone to help turn the key unless you have either got long arms or long wires on your multimeter! Also remember if the solenoid is clicking, and it's no more than a loose connection, it could spin & start the engine at any moment, so disconnect the spark plugs before you start, & keep fingers clear of the business end!

If no click, repeat the process to the battery, and with the small wires back to the key. If there is no +12 at the small wire terminal on the solenoid, then your problem may be in the remotes box or at the multipole conector where the remote loom is plugged in. The multipole connector for the remotes you could separate, WD40 & stick back together as well.


As a note, you will probably need to find a convenient unpainted bit of engine block to use as ground / -ve to connect the balck wire of your meter to for the solenoid tests.

I'l lleave the Honda experts to tell you how to dismantle the starter!
